Top Remi Elie News

  • Lightning's Remi Elie: Waived by Tampa Bay

    Elie (undisclosed) was waived by the Lightning on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Elie was placed on non-roster injured reserve prior to the first game of the season, but this move indicates he's recovered from his undisclosed injury. The 26-year-old winger will likely spend most, if not all of the campaign in the minors.

  • Lightning's Remi Elie: Lands on injured reserve

    Elie (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    It's unclear what injury Elie is dealing with. The 26-year-old lasted played in the NHL with the Sabres in 2018-19, so he should be expected to begin his campaign with AHL Syracuse once he's healthy.

  • Lightning's Remi Elie: Gets two-way deal with Tampa

    Elie signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Wednesday.

    Elie hasn't been in the NHL since 2018-19 when he had one assist in 16 appearances with the Sabres. The winger has collected 46 points in 87 games with AHL Rochester over the last three years, but he's unlikely to make the Lightning's Opening Night roster. Instead, expect Elie to begin 2021-22 with AHL Syracuse.

  • Remi Elie: Let go by Sabres

    Elie did not receive a qualifying offer from the Sabres and will become a UFA on Friday, Sabres beat writer Joe Yerdon reports

    Elie spent the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Rochester, producing eight goals and five assists in 34 contests. He has 106 games of NHL experience, so it's possible the 25-year-old could garner some interest as a depth forward. He hasn't played in the NHL since making 16 appearances in 2018-19 with the Sabres, in which he produced just one helper.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Clears waivers

    Elie cleared waivers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Elie only appeared in 16 games for the Sabres last season, collecting just a single point. He will head to AHL Rochester, and will look to improve on last year's 14 points in 25 contests with the club. He figures to be one of the first options for a call-up.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Minor-league bound

    Elie was waived for the purpose of reassignment by the Sabres on Monday.

    Elie played 16 games with the big club last year and recorded just one point, and he's being used in a checking role with 30 hits in that span. The 24-year-old still has plenty of time to develop into a modest offensive threat, however, and he should line up in a top-six role with AHL Rochester if he clears waivers.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Nabs one-year deal

    Elie inked a one-year, two-way contract with Buffalo on Thursday.

    After appearing in 72 games with the Stars in 2017-18, Elie was limited to a mere 16 NHL contests last year. Given the two-way nature of his deal, the winger is unlikely to see a significant uptick in opportunities, especially following the additions of Marcus Johansson and Jimmy Vesey.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Seeking arbitration

    Elie filed for salary arbitration Friday.

    Elie didn't see much action with Buffalo last season as he only managed one assist over 16 appearances. The 24-year-old spent most of the 2018-19 season with AHL Rochester, where he accrued eight goals and six assists over 25 regular-season games.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Sabres extend QO

    Elie received a qualifying offer from Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Claimed off waivers at the beginning of last season, Elie was unable to carve out a regular role with Buffalo, picking up just a single assist over 16 appearances. Before suiting up for the Sabres, Elie spent the better part of two seasons in Dallas, collecting 21 points in 90 games with the Stars.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Clears waivers, heads to minors

    Elie cleared waivers Sunday and was assigned to AHL Rochester, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    No teams bit on Elie, who has just one point in 16 games but added a physical presence with 30 hits in that span. The Sabres only have 11 healthy forwards since Johan Larsson is nursing an upper-body injury, so the team will likely recall a player from Rochester for Tuesday's game versus the Wild.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Dropped by Buffalo

    Elie was waived by the Sabres on Saturday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    One could see this coming from a mile away. Elie, who signed a one-year, $735,000 contract with the Stars in July of 2018, ended up on Buffalo's roster after the team claimed him off waivers, but he's only drawn into 16 of a possible 51 games for the parent club this season -- that's hardly any time at all for a player on a one-way deal. We suspect Elie will be reassigned to AHL Rochester in the likely event that he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Back to toiling in press box

    Elie was a spectator for the final six games leading up to the All-Star break.

    Elie has been limited to a depth role with the Sabres, which is a disturbing trend for a skater who was taken in the second round (40th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Obviously, the ex-Star can be left alone in all fantasy formats unless a myriad of injuries open up playing time for the winger.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Staying in lineup

    Elie has played in the Sabres' past three games.

    Often a healthy scratch, Elie has found himself in the lineup as of late. He's only appeared in 11 games, with one assist standing next to a goose egg in the scoring column the rest of the campaign. His strongest asset comes in the form of hits, where he has 19. Elie is not likely to help much in any regard, but at least he has the chance to redeem himself now that he's out of the press box for the time being.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Back to press box

    Elie will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game versus the Flyers.

    Elie had worked his way into eight games for the Sabres. He's collected an assist, his only point, and 16 hits during his time on the ice. He is scratched more often than not, and has limited value even in the deepest of leagues.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Plays in two straight games

    Elie took part in Saturday's win in Detroit as well as Tuesday's win over San Jose.

    Elie has mainly served as a healthy scratch for the Sabres, only appearing in six games thus far. Prior to appearing in Saturday's game, he hadn't played since Nov. 1. He's being used on the fourth line, and hasn't found the scoresheet yet. Elie also has nine hits, which is the extent of the other category coverage he's brought.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Barely playing for Buffalo

    Elie has only appeared in one of six games for the Sabres in November.

    Formerly with the Stars, Elie signed a one-year deal with the Sabres in July. It's interesting that No. 81 has played so sparingly because he's under a one-way deal and will be a restricted free agent next summer -- one would think the Sabres would want to get more out of him, but then again, this team has won four straight games and Elie's primarily been deployed in penalty-killing situations anyway. It's safe to drop the skater who's averaging only 11:14 of ice time and has made just four appearances with Buffalo.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Placed on second line

    Elie was moved to Buffalo's second line and is scheduled to be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Ottawa.

    Elie has only suited up for three games while watching the others from the press box. He's only been played in the bottom six since being claimed off waivers from the Stars, but appears set to play alongside Casey Mittelstadt and Sam Reinhart on the second line. This would be a big boon to Elie's fantasy value if he can hang on to that spot.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Making Sabres debut

    Elie will make his Sabres debut Saturday against the Rangers.

    The Sabres just claimed Elie off waivers Tuesday, and will immediately put him to work on their fourth line against New York. The 23-year-old winger only totaled six goals and 14 points in 72 games with the Stars last season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars at this point.

  • Sabres' Remi Elie: Now property of Buffalo

    Elie was claimed off waivers by the Sabres -- via the Stars -- on Tuesday.

    Elie was Dallas' second-round (40th overall) pick from the 2013 draft. He has plenty of untapped potential, and the winger's one-way contract should allow him to remain at the top level, though Buffalo could always waive him if he doesn't pan out. Elie has produced 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) over 90 NHL games.

  • Stars' Remi Elie: Designated for waivers

    Elie hit the waiver wire Monday in order to reassign him to the minors, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

    After playing in 72 games for the Stars last season, it appears Elie has been beat out for a spot on the 23-man roster by Gemel Smith and Roope Hintz. The 23-year-old Elie has yet to show the scoring touch he had during his time in the OHL, as he has just 21 points in 90 NHL contests in his brief three-year career.
